status

 

Hedera helix Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 202. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Europae arboribus putrescentibus, inque sepibus." RCN: 1637.

Lectotype (McAllister & Rutherford in Watsonia 18: 40. 1990): Herb. Linn. No. 280.2 ( LINN)  .

Generitype of Hedera Linnaeus  (vide Lamarck, Tabl. Encycl. (Ill. Gen.) 2: 135. 1797).

Current name: Hedera helix L.  ( Araliaceae  ).

Note: Lawrence & Schultze (in Gentes Herb. 6: 131. 1942), on the basis of Jackson’s Index, treated unspecified material in LINN as the type. In fact, there are two sheets (not part of a single gathering so Art. 9.15 does not apply) associated with this name, and Browicz (in Rechinger, Fl. Iranica 102: 2. 1973) designated 280.1 (LINN) as type. However, this specimen came from M. Kähler, and was not received by Linnaeus until after 1753 so cannot be original material. McAllister & Rutherford (in Watsonia 18: 14. 1990) chose 280.2 (LINN) as lectotype, noting that it belongs to the diploid cytotype.
